of president morsi and his supporters and shifting away from the opposition factions behind us and the president's opponents. this morning, egypt's top court was set to rule on the constitutionality of president morsi's decrees last week and the constitutionality of this special panel that drafted the constitution. they released a statement saying they canceled the hearing after pro-morsi demonstrators, supporters of the president, surrounded the courthouse. it's not clear if or when this hearing is going to be rescheduled, but now it seems the road is a little more clear. the stage is set for the president to get his way, for this nationwide referendum to take place on december 15th. opposition factions behind us say they've been squeezed out of this process. they're concerned that an islamist islam ist dominated government down the road could deny them rights. if people don't like it, randi, they can go out to the ballot boxes and vote no. >> it soundsike that the judges in putting this off perhaps they don't feel safe. >> reporter: well, it was a tense situation this morning
